Giveaway! The Secret Mountain: 4 Books in review

Four-year-old Babe is a lover of the arts. While she seems to detest jazz these days (Papa is a jazz musician and we think she might be rebelling), she just adores classical music (calls it ballet music) and of course, she loves books. So Sleep Softly: Classical Lullabies by Brahms, Schubert, Satie, Debussy, was not a […]

Review: Oops! I wish I had known this before-- The Parenting Handbook

Review: Oops! I wish I had known this before– The Parenting Handbook

One of the first things I remarked about OOPS! the Parenting Handbook: I Wish I Had Known This Before, was its size. It’s thin–100 pages long. A parenting book that a parent can actually find time to read. The second thing, the author who is  clearly well educated, doesn’t overwhelm us with big words. A […]

Mama Yoga and the Story of Namaste: Book review

I am so grateful for the amount of work I have these days. The month of February was a little too intense– I was teaching one or two, sometimes three yoga classes every day.

Annie Fox had my attention in the opening pages of her book, Teaching Kids to Be Good People: Progressive Parenting for the 21st Century “One of the hardest things to master, aside from parallel parking, is staying cool in the face of destructive emotions–your own or someone else’s.” This year, I’ve concurred not only driving […]

Conceiving Healthy Babies Book review and Giveaway

Conceiving Healthy Babies Book review and Giveaway

The white book with the cute naked baby on the cover, sat on my shelf for a long time. It sat there and got covered by other books because conceiving babies was just about the last thing on my mind. For the record, Bug is 21 months old and I still don’t have my period. […]

Sweet Sleep book review and Giveaway

Sweet Sleep book review and Giveaway

I wasn’t so sure when I saw the title of the book, “Sweet Sleep.” Great. Another book about sleep by “experts,” I thought. Many of the books published these days tend to be variations of Ferber and Cry it Out. You know the advice that goes something like, “be sure to put towels down in […]

Relax-a-bye Baby book Giveaway!

Receiving mail and parcels is a big part of our day-to-day. Sometimes we’re home and Babe excitedly runs to the door to see what has been delivered. Sometimes the doorbell rings just as Bug has fallen asleep and I get a little frustrated! Other times, we make an outing of getting to the post office […]
